I am honored to serve as Jody Phillips' campaign manager for so many reasons. I have known Jody for years but came to know her so much better when we started working together. There are many of us who are long-timers and welcoming Jody into the fold was easy. She has an amazing attitude, non-stop energy and an ability to get the impossible done.

When I found out that Jody was interested in register of deeds position I offered to manage her campaign because I think so highly of her. Before I knew it, there were a dozen of us working together to support Jody, many of whom worked with her in Pittsfield City Hall when she was city clerk. From city councilors to her staff, to her colleagues inside and outside of City Hall, Jody has had an ever-growing group of us who have come on board as her supporters. We know her as someone who has been in elected office and understands public service and all the complications of what that means -- managing people, budgets and positive relationships with colleagues, and most importantly, the public.

I ask you to join me in voting for the most qualified candidate for our next register of deeds, Jody Phillips.
